What is your opinion on using the new ttk Treeview control to implement
multi-cell tables and grids?

My understanding is that one can configure the Treeview control as a
single level, multi-column list/grid and then float a borderless
Toplevel window with an input widget over the current Treeview "cell" to
allow for input? Disclaimer: I haven't tried this yet.
